Catalogue number: DES-RHZ-4-1-22. Arnold Rothholz Archive, University of Brighton Design Archives.

The focus of this month’s feature slot on the Archives Hub, a leading online research portal providing access to records of archives held in over 200 British institutions, is the archive of the graphic and information designer H A (Arnold) Rothholz (1919-2000), held at the Design Archives. The feature celebrates the launch of the newly-completed catalogue descriptions of the Rothholz collection, which makes the detail of the collection’s contents available for the first time. The feature gives an introduction to Rothholz’s work, as well as a taster of some of the fascinating research material in the archive.

To tie in with the launch of the catalogue and the Archives Hub feature, a new set of Flickr images has been added to the Design Archives Flickr pages, part of our digital strategy to bring our collections to wide audiences.
